Not sure I would agree with the "classic" ridge walk described by Lopez but still good fun. Mainly class 2 with maybe a little class 3 that one could easily bypass. Very scenic area with some of the better alpine lakes I have come across in Idaho.
Climbed Altair as the third peak of the day over 11800’. Started with Peak 11887’ from our camp at Baptie Lake, then Standhope, and finally a traverse to Altair. I was dreading this final climb a bit because the ridge looked very loose from a distance, but I was glad to find the rock was actually very stable. Hung out on the summit for quite a while, didn’t want the day to end. Here’s a write up and a bunch more photos of the trip.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
